David I's "The Developer Twelve Days of Christmas 2014"

Posted by on in Programming

Back in 2010, I wrote a blog post with a simple Delphi VCL program "The Developer's 12 Days of Christmas" which displayed the traditional lyrics and my attempt at some updated technology based lyrics. For 2014, I've created a FireMonkey version of the same application. Similar to the original sample, this multi-device FMX version has two TButtons and a TMemo. I have added a TToolBar component and also made sure that the buttons are half of the TToolBar's width and resize based on the target device's client width (connecting to the OnCreate and OnResize events for the form).

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
